Join us for this exciting webinar... a teaser for our upcoming CAE Spring Conference: Bridging Cultures for Caring & Community to be held in Northern Italy on May 2-8, 2024, where we’ll be attending a hands-on 2-day workshop in the city of Reggio Emilia: birthplace of this world-renowned educational philosophy widely used in our work as educational architects and advocates for students.

In this webinar, learn more about the Reggio Emilia Approach directly from the Reggio Children organization, get a glimpse of what to expect from the in-person CAE conference workshop, and start to explore it’s contextual applications in the US. The Reggio Emilia Approach® is an educational philosophy based on the image of the child, and of human beings, who possess potential for development as they learn and grow in their relationships with others.

This Educational Project, which has inspired schools throughout the world, is developed in the Municipal Infant-toddler centres and Preschools of Reggio Emilia. The educational services are based on the value of interaction and learning constructed in the relationship with others, and promote children’s rights, independence and creativity. A fundamental element of the Reggio Emilia Approach® is the value given to the environment and the spaces intended as places of life, of communication, and of relationship building between children and adults. The space interacts, modifies itself and takes shape in relation with projects and learning experiences of children in an ongoing dialogue between architecture and pedagogy.
